IEA: Global Energy Demand Grew by 2.1% Last Year
Global energy demand rose by 2.1% in 2017, more than twice the previous year's rate, and reached an estimated 14,050 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe), compared with 10,035 Mtoe in 2000. Energy demand was boosted by strong global economic growth, with oil, gas and coal meeting most of the increase in demand for energy, and renewables seeing impressive gains, said the International Energy Agency (IEA) in a press release, citing the Global Energy & CO2 Status Report, which was released on Wednesday. Fossil fuels accounted for over 70% of the growth in world energy demand last year and carbon emissions rose for the first time since 2014.
“In Future, Energy Will Be Available Almost Free of Charge”
“In future, energy will be available at a very low price or almost free of charge, money will be made with its management and transmission,” said the Managing Director of the energy company Interenergo, Anton Papež, recently in Ljubljana at March’s En.odmev 018 conference, which focused on the digital transformation of energy. Papež was one of the panellists in a discussion about the future of energy supply.
